Poslechni si / listen Cool Zombie

For a time I lived in Tennessee
A pretty hillbilly
A Cool Zombie
The people there were real friendly
Flat top cats and dungarees
A Cool Zombie
The town of Dayton suited me
Fiftyfour pickup, eggs over easy
A Cool Zombie

Took him a trip to London town
Goldfish eyes and a permanent frown
A Cool Zombie
You haven't seen me in a while
Give you anything but a smile
A Cool Zombie

Took the King's shilling
And the body was willing
But not playing with a full deck
The dead man eyes a giveaway
Those baby blues a thousand miles away
A Cool Zombie

(Come closer)
Dead man with a famous head
(Come closer)
Earning him a crust of bread
(Come closer)
Come sign my book of the dead
(Come closer)
I might even sign your leg
(Come closer)
Gimme your best side Baby (kissing sound)
(Come closer)
Come learn my vocabulary
A Cool Zombie

I bought an a framed house that suited me
On top of the vale of Tennessee
The place that made world history
The monkey trial of 23
A Cool Zombie

The kind of place a lost soul could hide
Hadn't changed since Bonnie and Clyde
And this goes out to Ronnie B
The sailor man on his Harley
Showed me how good life could be
A real live tour of gods country

The good folk there were good to me
They never ever twigged
I was a Cool Zombie

Yeah

Poslechni si / listen Stay in The Game

I had a dream just the other night
It looked a lot like you
I saw a painting on the wall
Just like the one you drew
I ate a steak just the other night
It tasted just like you
Felt like a tank in my armour plate
But you could see right through

Words are easy, words are cheap
Wake you up, send you to sleep
Words defend when things get tough
But late at night, they are not enough
Oh stay in the game
Oh stay in the game
What's in a name
Send you all insane

I wore a coat just the other day
It felt a lot like you
Emperor's new clothes and baby
You could see right through
So now you want my demon seed
Even though you know
I 've been there once before
Sold my soul to rock and roll

Words can cut you to the quick
Nut that ol' chesnut Ich liebe dich
They only matter put to sound
Grabbed from the air and written down
na na na na
na na na na na
na na na na na na

Poslechni si / listen Marrying The Gunner's Daughter

There was a boy, a frightened boy
Grew up to be some kind of man
Lived in a wood, tried to be good
Unlike his bad old man
Found a scheme
Learned to dream just to get through the days
Before long he grew so strong
He didn't care either way
He wanted death, but his last breath
They sentenced him to life
Anarchy and girls bodies
Epiphany for life
(Nice....dream)
There was a man, a frightened man
Grew up to be some kind of boy
Ate scraps from people's laps
Made dream reality

He got to be a tough monkey and
Look them in the
Eye death by fashion, strapped to a cannon
So keep your powder dry

Marrying the gunner's daughter
You know me, I go too far
Like a heifer to the slaughter
Here he comes, the Blueblack Hussar

Strapped to a gun ain't much fun
But it's all that he had left
Got a number one, just for fun
Started playing Russian roulette

He got to be a tough monkey so look
Them in the eye
Death by fashion, strapped to a cannon
So keep your powder dry
Marrying the gunner's daughter
You know me, I go too far
Like a heifer to the slaughter
Here he comes, the Blueblack Hussar

Marrying the gunner's daughter
You know me, I go too far
Like a heifer to the slaughter
Here he comes, the Blueblack Hussar

He wanted death, but his last breath
They sentenced him to life
Anarchy and girl's bodies
Epiphany for life
Nice dream
Nice dream

Marrying the Gunner's Daughter
You know me, I go too far
Like a heifer to the slaughter
Here he comes, the Blueblack Hussar
Hussar

Johnny in black you know he never looked back
The whole world was his stage
He never acted his age

A girl we called French Valerie
Gave a gold plate chain to me
Asked her who had given it her
An old flame called Vince Taylor"
I nearly done a Vince Taylor)

Oh, Johnny looked back, and never looked back
Leather and chains so goddmaned vain

Johnny in black
Oh no he never looked back
The whole world was his stage
He never acted his age

A girl called French Valerie, uh oh
Gave a gold plate chain to me
Mentioned her who had given it her
An old flame named Vince Taylor

Poslechni si / listen Valentines

I bought you flowers, to smooth things over
By the time they died, the time they died
The armistice was over
I bought you roses, red ones
To try and chill you out, trouble is
I bought you flowers, to smooth things over
By the time they died, the time they died
The armistice was over

I bought you roses, red ones To try and chill you out, trouble is
I know the answers
Before you spit them out

Is this love, or just a habit
If it's love I never had it
Pray for serenity so no one has to care for me
No I know where the pain is
I know where the hurt is
I know where the problems lie
Is this love or just a habit
Was I like a frightened rabbit
Caught up in the headlights of your smile

I bought you flowers, to smooth things over
By the time they died, the time they died
The armistice was over
I know you think I long for pastures new
Believe me I want to be with anyone,
With anyone but you just my bad behaviour
Four letter words my saviour fuck it
May the last words that you hear be mine
And everyday a valentine

We know where the pain is
We know where the hurt is
We know where the problems lie

Don't expect kindness from strangers
A life that's free from danger
Pray for serenity
So terrified of losing me

I know where the pain is
I know where the hurt is
I know where the problems lie

I know you think it tragic
To heal it with black magic

Poslechni si / listen Darlin' Boy

Any messages Miss Moneypenny
They tried so hard
But there will never be
There will never be
Another Connery
Disco volante

Darlin' boy, darlin' face
Parks his car in your space
Darling smile don't entertain
That deadly gaze
You'll never love again
Oh darlin', sweet darlin'

Oh don't come so close to you
No good for you
This perfect man
Too good to be true
Take your sex above beyond
A sack artist
The name is Blonde

Darlin' boy, darlin' curls
Hypnotises all the girls

Darlin' boy loves the chase
Parks his tongue in your face
Darlin' boy, darlin' curls
Hypnotises all the girls
Darlin' girl, save your breath
Walk away he's the kiss of death
Oh darlin' girl, save your breath
Walk away he's the kiss of death

Heaven in the backseat
Of his car
Lips as hot as
Hiroshima

Punkyoungirl you're a piece of work
Designed to make a body hurt
Punkyoungirl, well what do you know
Got ourselves a new Bardot
Punkyoungirl needs a middle aged man
Whose midlife crisis you began
Punkyyounggirl, such a work of art
Licensing each body part

Oooo don't want don't want to go yet
Lift up your skirt, let me lick the alphabet

Punkyoungirl needs a Terence Stamp
Perfect at swinging sixties vamp
Punkyoungirl in it for the crack
Had all your best times lying on your back
Punkyoungirl what's under there
I hope to christ it's lingerie
If it goes wrong don't you look at me
My brand don't carry responsibility

Punkyoungirl you're state of mind
Men kneel down in front of your behind
Punkyoungirl in it for the crack
Power is such an aphrodisiac

Oooo don't want don't want to go yet
Lift up your skirt, let me lick the alphabet
We are we are we are
We are what we wear
All the big players don't have a care

She said, she said she said she said
She said
Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels
Nothing tastes as good
She said
Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels
She said nothing tastes as good
She said nothing tastes as good as
Skinny feels nothing tastes as good
She said nothing tastes as good as
Skinny feels nothing tastes as good
She said nothing tastes as good as
Skinny feels nothing tastes as good, as good
She said nothing, she said nothing
She said nothing tastes
nothing no, no, nothing
Tastes as good

Poslechni si / listen Cradle Your Hatred

I'm sorry I eat my soup with a fork
I'm sorry I don't listen when you talk
I'm sorry I never took the load off you
I'm sorry if my behaviour seems too cruel
I'm sorry it's time to talk, it's time,
I'm sorry that you're not me and I'm not you Stand up
I'm sorry for all the shit I've put you
Through, stand up
I'm sorry I stole away your perfect dream,
Stand up
I'm sorry for all the time I din't kiss you,
It doesn't matter, stand up

You cradle your hatred like a baby
Stand up
Slave to resentment lately
Stand up
God only knows when it's gonna stop
Whatever I say is okay
As long as you come out on top

I'm sorry were not like the cartoon family,
Stand up
I'm sorry but I see that as nothing to envy,
Stand up
I'm sorry no one's ever sworn at you
I'm sorry cos they sure have sworn at me
Let me explain
A poor boy's dreams are his only luxury
I'm sorry we are always locking horns
I'm tired of sitting on the naughty step
The dunce's cap just another crown of thorns
It's time

You cradle your hatred like a baby
Stand up
Slave to resentment lately
Stand up
God only knows when it's gonna stop
Whatever I say is okay
As long as you come out on top
Stand up

Good morning mister, how are you?
Are we sleeping the whole night through
Or hearing voices in the hall
I have the shots but it's your call
Good morning mister how's it been?
Your daily breads a daily sin

A fist in the skulls worth two in the bush
You're feeling lucky right now
Or does your brain need a push?
Is it just me or is it just medication?

Good morning mister how's it been?
Your daily breads a daily sin
Look at the mighty how they fall
I have the shots but it's your call
Your fifty minutes is up up up up

A fist in the skull's worth two in the bush
You're feeling lucky right now
Or does your brain need a push?
Is it just me or is it just medication
Medication

Your fifteen minutes is up up up up
A fist in the skulls up to the eyeball
You're feeling lucky right now
Or does your brain need a push
Is it just me or is it just medication
Your fifty minutes is up

Dedication, medication
Dedication, medication

Is it just me or is it just medication

I met Vivienne 30 years ago
She was walking down Kings Road
She had a beautiful head, beautiful legs,
Beautiful legs

A cup of coffee in Beaufort Street
Didn't know me from Adam
Because Vivienne's tears flood everywhere
She can make your garden grow
Vivienne's tears flow everywhere
She can make your garden, garden, garden grow

I met Vivienne at the Vortex Club
I was wasted after the show
She had beautiful legs, beautiful eyes,
Beautiful thighs

You shouldn't be a singer Adam, Oh dear me no
You shouldn't sing at all
Should I have taken your advice?
It wasn't very nice

Well you were really funny from the first
With your garlic cure for thrush
Living on the planet, Vivienne,
Gave me the bums rush

Vivienne's tears flood everywhere
She can make your garden grow
Vivienne's tears flow everywhere
She can make your garden, garden, garden grow

Vivienne's tears flood everywhere
She can make your garden grow
Vivienne's tears flow everywhere
She can make your garden, garden, garden grow

Buy at the sound of trumpets, sell when theres
Blood on the streets

One word from him is worth ten from me
A student of adversity
He beat indulgence right out of me The wild eyed child from tin pan alley

ssshhh

He wanted to search inside me
To find this oh so, oh so cool purity
He showed me the films I just can't see
The wild eyed child from tin pan alley, yeah

Who's a Goofy Bunny, Who's a Goofy Bunny then?
Who's a Goofy Bunny, Who's a Goofy Bunny then?

He showed me the slim chance I'd got
And all the friendships that I had not
Be sure he has the guts of three
The wild child of tin pan alley, yeah

Who's a Goofy Bunny, Who's a Goofy Bunny?
